Bubble buzz; hugs on State Street
The seats were already filled in Proctors' Robb Alley Wednesday afternoon before a sneak preview by bubble artist Fan Yang of his upcoming "Gazillion Bubble Show."
Shortly after Fan started his half-hour performance, however, word spread on the street and the standing-room area became filled as well.
Fan will perform shows at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Oct. 8 at Proctors. To view a video of some highlights from Wednesday's performance, click here.
Earlier in the day, the future professionals at the Paul Mitchell School in Schenectady participated in the company's third annual "Free Hugs Day" by marching down to State and Jay streets and offering free hugs to pedestrians.
The campaign is held nationwide at Paul Mitchell School locations. To view a video, click here.
